Could be, but I'm also thinking it could have been "reseller refurbished" (i.e. a return that they've resold, not official Canon refurbished), but the eBay listing does says explicitly "Manufacturer refurbished".
dennisgibson, how pristine were the accessories in the box?
Everything looks brand new. Manuals not opened, charger looks brand new, lens packed perfectly (I know I can never repack them like they came) etc.
